Because printers and networks vary, the best instructions for setting up and networking your printer should be in its users manual. Also, your network-ready printer may have come with installation software that can help you share the printer over the network.

There are three main steps you need to take when networking a printer, including the following: Enable the File And Printer Sharing setting, Make the printer available to all users, and Direct PCs to the printer.

Add wireless card to gateway sx2800-01


You add the printer to the router not the PC. Go to the manufacturers website for installation instructions. or follow the instructions on the disc. Set up is usually done with a wired connection anyway. But to make your tower wireless it is easier to add a wireless USB adaptor.

Cant connect by wireless printer to my computer it ssid what do that mean i have a router


If you are trying to connect to the printer wirelessly, and you also have a router, unfortunately you will have to either switch between two networks (the router and the printer) or plug your printer into the router (via Ethernet)

Can the HP Pavilion 763n PC Desktop use a wireless router?


Your computer has a "built-in" 10/100BT network connection integrated on the motherboard but to go wireless you'll have to add either a PCI (internal) or USB (external) wireless network adapter to transmit/receive the signal from your wireless router. Think "walkie-talkie" here with the wireless router installed AFTER the modem (phone line outlet needed) located in a central area of your home and transmitting/receiving to the individual wireless network adapters that must be separately installed in each computer.

What is the difference between a wireless access point and wireless router?


To have an access point you need some kind of routed on your network already. For most home users they just add a wireless access point if they have an older router that does not have built in wireless. If you do not have a router already, you want a wireless router for sure.

For businesses they buy multiple access points to extend the range of their wireless networks. They still need a router, which would not be wireless in most cases, it would be a commercial grade router. Then they have access points all over the building (or buildings) where they need wireless access.

Please make sure you rate my answer 4 thumbs up, it is extremely important to me. I would be forever grateful if you could do so. If you need more help on this question please just respond to my answer here and I will get right back to you.


Thanks

I want to connect a wireless Cannon printer to a Toshiba laptop, do I need a certain type of router? I have WiFi and WWAN internet connection, do I still need a router?


The printer needs to be connected to a router.
The router has to be wireless.
The laptop should then be connected to the router in order to install.

The printer shoul have an option to search and connect to a wireless router. After searching an connecting, you have to connect the laptop to the router and install the printer as an network printer.

Need to secure my wireless router. do not know how?


Go to your wireless router software and click on the security setting section. Create a WEP key by providing a secret code or password that restricts access to the network. (to get access type http://192.168.0.1) Step2Be sure to choose a key with a combination of letters, numbers and symbols. These types of codes are the most difficult to break. Step3Click on the wireless connections options on your wireless router software. Find your router from the list of found servers and click on security settings. Step4Add the WEP key that you used on the main router settings to the wireless device. A lock symbol should now appear next to the name of your wireless router from the list of available routers. Step5Access the Internet via your router using only devices that have the WEP installed in their wireless settings. Without it, they will not be able to complete the connections to the network. This information must be added to all wireless devices that you plan to access via the router.

Have Belkin Wireless G Router, how do I set up network to allow wireless lap top to access printer?


You have to add or share your printer to the network.
To do that go to the printer folder and select Add a printer (if you dont have any) or if you have one put the cursor over your icon printer and with the right bottom select "Sharing"
Your icon printer will appear with a small hand below and your printer will be visible on the network.

When i try to print wirelessly from my laptop it says its not communicating with printer. I have downloaded a d link wireless router to computer and i don't know why it isn't working?


Hi nataliejm3,

Assuming that you already added the printerto your desktop, you will need to add the MAC address of the printer to your router.

Hope this helps and good luck.

How to connect a wireless router to a emachine T6520 desktop pc


If your router is near the desktop then you are best to use a wired connection to the router using a network patch cable. If it's farther and you want to use wireless then you would need to add a wireless adapter (USB or PCI) to the desktop. These are available for about $20.
